There is an industrial estate that accommodates a number of small businesses. There is also a highly successful dairy farm.
There was a lead smelting house at Malehurst, operated with a Boulton and Watt steam engine, between 1778 and it is going out of use by 1831. A barytes-processing plant was established at Malehurst Mill in c.1910, linked by an aerial ropeway to a mine at Huglith, until 1949 when the ropeway was taken down. The buildings became used to mill animal foodstuffs.
